Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai, one of the most scenic areas of Thailand, consistently rates as one of the Top 10 Cities in Asia. Home to over 300 Buddhist Wats (temples) — 36 are located within the old city walls alone.

Thailand's Holiest Shrine
Don't miss a visit to the spectacular 600-yr-old Buddhist Temple of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep — it's one of the most famous in Chiang Mai and the holiest shrine in northern Thailand. Located high in the hills, near the summit of Doi Suthep (a 5,300-ft peak named after the hermit Sudeva), the temple can be reached by driving up the mountain's winding road — it's about a 30-minute drive from the city center.



The final climb to the sacred site is via an enormous dragon-headed serpent staircase of 306 steps. If you don't feel like climbing, you can take the tram up the side of the hill. Once at the top, the temple grounds offer breathtaking panoramic views of the city of and valley below.

Chiang Rai
— Mae Kok River

From Chiang Mai, travel northeast to visit Chiang Rai. Cruise down the scenic 80-mile-long Mae Kok River that runs through the heart of Chiang Rai — it's said to be one of the most beautiful and unspoiled rivers of the world. See the hill-tribes and jungle-tribes of Chiang Rai along the way.



The "Golden Triangle"
One of the most popular day trips from Chiang Rai (and Chiang Mai) is a visit to the famous "Golden Triangle" — where the borders of Thailand, Burma and Laos meet on the Mekong River.
